“If the Prime Minister brings the Withdrawal bill to the Commons for a vote the question will be “what has changed?”

Unless she can demonstrate something new that addresses the problem of the backstop then it is highly likely her deal will go down to defeat once again.

The Prime Minister has not pursued the one option that has ever achieved a positive vote for something in Parliament.

Alternative arrangements to the backstop won easily whilst everything else has failed.
For the bill to have any prospect of success then there must be real change to protect the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom and deliver Brexit.”
